WESPAC FILES PROJECT DESCRIPTION WITH FEDERAL AND PROVINCIAL ENVIRONMENTAL AGENCIES TO INITIATE ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW PROCESS

 

Wespac filed a project description on May 11, 2105 for its proposed WesPac Tilbury Marine Jetty Project with Federal and Provincial environmental agencies to initiate the environmental assessment process. This process is estimated to take 15 months and will provide a thorough environmental review and allow for public consultation and input from the public and first nations.

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency announced a 20 day federal comment period on the WesPac Tilbury Marine Jetty Project was announced on May 22, 2015. The announcement consists of a news release, public notice and the posting of the project description summary on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry internet site (Registry reference number 80105). CEAA sent out notices to relevant parties and first nations asking for comments on two questions: should a federal environmental assessment be performed and should CEAA defer to BCEAO to prepare one Environmental Assessment covering the requirements of both CEAA and BCEAO (a process called substitution). Comments on those two questions are due to CEAA by June 11th
